French 18th century Quilt madder red ground resist printed 102X90
Hello and thank you for looking. A very rare and exciting textile this amazing textile is a French, 18th century quilt dating from the mid to late 1700's. It was resist printed and the root of the madder plant was used to obtain this fabulous faded raspberry red. This textile is enormous for it's day! This textile is 100% hand stitched and lightly hand quilted. The backing is pieced using wonderful 18th century homespun linens. There are patches, mends etc! The front of this textile has some wonderful patches in places, one patch is not a matching fabric, but it's a lovely piece of 19th century toile de Jouy One of the very very best quilts on offer, it's simply wonderful (please see condition details below) quilt 88. This gorgeous textile measures approx. 102 inches by 90 inches. This lovely quilt is in wonderful condition. It is in as found, not freshly laundered condition. I have left this quilt in as found, not freshly laundered condition to allow the owner to decide if they would like to clean this piece and if so , how. This piece can be hand washed and hung to dry, however some may wish to keep in in as found condition. It has storage dust and has not been cleaned for goodness knows how long , so if considering for home use , it will need to be washed.
There are patches in places, the backing has mends etc. This piece is loaded with charm, gently and unevenly faded with time. A once in a lifetime. Please see my other Antique French fabric auctions by clicking View Sellers Other Items.
